Film portrait of Karen, human rights advocate from Honduras
Before the summer period, Karen from Honduras was a guest at Shelter City Amsterdam. Karen has been a human rights advocate since 2007 and is committed to defending women's rights. In addition, Karen works with young feminists and focuses on the decriminalization of abortion. More lawyers are murdered in Honduras than in any other country in the world. Like many of her colleagues, Karen has received death threats and faces intimidation. Yet she continues with her work because she believes that Honduran women, like in the Netherlands, are entitled to equal rights and safety.
Filmmakers Paula Vonhof and Lotte Konijn made this beautiful film portrait of her.
